ANIMAL INSTINCT. Outfits featuring full animal imagery are making their way down today’s runway’s. Could this be the trend that ends 2017?
Outfit by Kenzo
Since time immemorial, we have associated various animals with certain positive traits: the lion for courage, the dragon with might and so on. This season sees many brands—including Alexander McQueen, Balmain, Gucci and others— let loose with animals on their runway collections. Not just in patterns, but in full forms, too. This jacket from Kenzo with its bold silver eagle print is a perfect representation of the trend, which combines simplicity with prominent and large animal imagery. We can expect this trend to make its way to popular high street brands like H&M and Zara in the months to come.
